Pure and candid, Kim Hang Ah’s goal is to fall in love and get married to a man.
Lee Seung Gi steps into the role of Lee Jae Ha, the prince of South Korea’s monarchy. His personality reflects his royal position, with refined humor and a handsome face; however, he has little interest in pursuing politics.
